Live from NYC: Adoption, a Plane Crash, and a Busload of Lutherans

A special live edition of The Moth recorded at The Players Club in New York City. Teacher Maris Blechner describes her difficulties with pregnancy, the children she adopts, and her eventual work in the field of adoption. After his father barely survives a plane crash, Joshua Wolf Shenk finally makes the connection he's longed for his whole life. And a Lutheran minister with a strong independent streak, Nadia Bolz-Weber (pictured) has to admit that she is terrified of heights during a bus trip. Hosted by Peter Aguero and The Moth Radio Hour Producer, Jay Allison.
